Overview

Tschiffely rides again ! But this time in a 30 horse-power Ford.
The most famous equestrian explorer of the twentieth century decides to make a perilous journey across the Atlantic. His mission? To return to his old haunts in South America and undertake a harrowing 7,000 mile journey through Argentina, across the inhospitable regions of Tierra del Fuego and over the majestic Andes mountains.
One of the finest travel writers of his day, Tschiffely packs his story with a host of adventures and colourful characters including riding with gauchos and staying with the legendary Ona Indians. In addition "This Way Southward" details the adventurer's emotional last meeting with his two legendary Criollo horses, Mancha and Gato. These were the equine heroes Tschiffely had ridden for 10,000 miles in 1925 from Argentina to Washington DC, and who were now living in retirement on the wild South American pampas.
Lavishly illustrated with maps and numerous photographs taken by the author, "This Way Southward" is a rare treat for anyone interested in the travels of this famous traveller. No equestrian travel collection is complete without this famous classic.
